The semi-rural township of Oxford remains refreshingly undeveloped for an area that celebrated its 150-year sesquicentennial in 1987. While the village preserves its small-town look and charming atmosphere, the quiet neighborhoods and welcoming attitude make it ideal for family life. Others are often drawn to Oxford as a retreat from the hectic pace and pressures of urban living. Oxford public schools provide a wide range of opportunities, from a strong core curriculum to vocational/technical training and special programs.
While abundant farmland and many gravel pits attest to the regionís agricultural roots, the township is poised to develop into a robust area with expansive plans for the future. Current development is primarily confined to single-family homes. However, the village shopping district provides a pleasing selection of goods and services, and small retailers are scattered throughout the area. Community members and civic leaders have created a 20-year masterplan for renovating and expanding the community, making use of vacant land and enhancing the quality of life in Oxford.
Just 40 miles from the many attractions and advantages of Detroit, Oxford also offers easy access to rich recreational resources in the form of state parks, ski areas, swimming facilities, nature centers, marinas, and arenas that feature the Detroit Pistons and Detroit Lions. The outdoor summer music theatre of Pine Knob is also located nearby. The M-24 connection to Interstate 75 and SMART CONNECTOR bus service ensures efficient transportation to key area destinations.
